The stress of my art portfolio has kind of put me in a creative pit, so I really had to force myself to make some Easter cards, even though they were incredibly simple. Absolutely nothing goes to waste when it comes to paper; a habit ingrained in me by my Grade 6 teacher. "Paper has two sides" she used to tell us, and encouraged us to fill a box with barely used paper. Kids can be pretty wasteful and this was before my hometown, Edmonton, had recycling pick up. Anyway, from my own scrap paper box I soon had a pile of bunnies punched out in spare moments. The next question was, what to do with so many bunnies? Make cards of course!
I tried a few window sizes until I settled on a square one made with a Marvy Uchida Extra Giga punch. I could see making just a purely yellow card on the outside with bunnies too. The possibilities are endless, really, I just have to discover them. Hopefully I can find something just as inspiring in time for Mother's Day :-)
I'm going to start signing my posts with my name btw - I signed up for a Google alert and there's another Purple Pony blog out there! Naturally I want mine to show up too :-) Some day I'll tell you all how I arrived at that name!
